Joel Murphy has found himself underwhelmed by this summer’s crop of action films and he finally figured out why: they aren’t weird enough. Big budget Hollywood films just feel so homogenized and formulaic. They aren’t allowed to stray too far from the norm. And, as a result, they are dreadfully dull. Murphy and Lars call for a return to the weird action films of the 1980s.
They also discuss their dream for two of the weirdest celebrities out there to collaborate on a project – David Lynch and Björk. Plus, the dynamic duo discuss tipping for carryout orders, dealing with difficult taxi drivers and how different races are presented in movies.
Should you tip on a carryout order? What type of film would David Lynch and Björk make together? Who is Johnny Tipswell? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
This week’s music:
- Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
- End – “Seven Promises” by William Brooks
